Lot Essay

'The physical harem is the dangerous frontier where sacred law and pleasure collide. This is not the harem of the Western Orientalist imagination, an anxiety-free place of euphoria and the absence of constraints, where the word "harem" has lost its dangerous edge. My harem is based on the historical reality; rather than the artistic images of the West - an idyllic, lustful dream of sexually available women, uninhibited by the moral constraints of 19th Century Europe.' (The artist, quoted on http://www.houkgallery.com/exhibitions/2010-11-04_lalla-essaydi/).
